Drabek vs. Yankees

TIME/TV: 4:05 p.m., YES Network

WEATHER: Little bit chilly here again today. Sky is clear with just a few clouds.

UMPIRES: HP Wally Bell, 1B Laz Diaz, 2B Scott Barry, 3B John Hirschbeck

HELP WANTED: Robinson Cano is tied for fourth in the majors with eight home runs but six of them have been solo shots. In case you’re wondering, Cano trails Ryan Braun (9), Jose Bautista (9) and Alfonso Soriano (9).

A PRETTY GOOD PICK: As we finish off three days of hearing about “value” and “upside” among NFL players who have just been drafted, how about this pick: On this day in 1923, the Yankees signed a 19-year-old kid from Columbia University to a pro contract. His name? Lou Gehrig. In an odd coincidence, exactly 16 years later Gehrig played the last of his 2,130 straight games for the Yankees, a 3-2 loss to Washington at Yankee Stadium. The Yankees were off on May 1 and on May 2 Gehrig officially ended his streak.

END OF THE RUN: When he gave up two earned runs on Friday night, Dave Robertson had his scoreless streak of 8 1/3 innings snapped. They were the first runs Robertson had been charged with this season.

STAY SAFE IN THE SUN: For two hours before tomorrow’s game, the Yankees will host a free skin cancer screening for all ticketed fans. Dr. Darrell Rigel and his team will conduct the screenings from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the main level behind home plate (between Sections 217-223), and the screenings will cover only the arms and face and will take less than a minute to complete. Sponsor LaRoche-Posay will also give away sunscreen to the first 30,000 fans arriving at the game. It’s a great idea for a service and – as someone with fair skin myself – I urge everyone going to the game to take a minute and take advantage of it.

UPDATE, 4:12 p.m.: Well, first pitch was at 4:10 p.m. and by 4:11 Rajai Davis was on third base. Not sure what happened to Granderson on that ball but he took a terrible route – in then back, never a good combo – and the line drive went all the way to the wall. Yunel Escobar then tapped back to Burnett to score Davis and it’s 1-0 Jays.

UPDATE, 4:22 p.m.: Apparently the sun is particularly brutal today – 4 p.m. starts are notorious for that – because Teixeira just crushed a fly ball to deep center that Davis was tracking back to the wall but clearly lost sight of as it fell about five feet away from him. Tex ended up on second with a double.

UPDATE, 4:35 p.m.: Burnett hits 95 mph on his last fastball to strikeout Mike McCoy and end the inning. Still 1-0 Jays.

UPDATE, 4:50 p.m.: Productive inning for the Yankees here: Swisher singled, Chavez walked, Posada grounded into what looked like a double play but Chavez broke it up with a great slide and Martin smacked a RBI single up the middle. Then, after a walk from Gardner, Jeter hit a shallow sac fly and Granderson lined a RBI single to left. Suddenly they went from 1-0 down to 3-1 up.

UPDATE, 5:05 p.m.: Couple of deep drives for the Jays that inning adds up to one run and it’s 3-2 now. Adam Lind had the sac fly that drove in Escobar.

UPDATE, 5:22 p.m.: Gardner doinks a single to left to make it 5-2 and end Drabek’s afternoon. Not particularly impressive from the touted prospect (and member of my fantasy team … grrr). Bases loaded for Jeter with Jason Frasor coming on.

UPDATE, 5:26 p.m.: In addition to having a power bat, Jose Bautista has a cannon for an arm. Jeter lined a decently-deep fly to right, but there was no chance for a sac fly this time. Bautista threw a one-hop bullet home and Posada had to hold. Then Granderson flied out and the Yankees couldn’t tack on any more runs. It’s 5-2.

UPDATE, 5:34 p.m.: Strong 1-2-3 from A.J. to get through the fourth. With so many consecutive games in a row, length from the starters is even more important.

UPDATE, 5:53 p.m.: Rocket home run for McCoy to lead off the fifth for Burnett, but he settled in and even picks off (!!) Rajai Davis after an infield single. He’s at 69 pitches through five.

UPDATE, 6:11 p.m.: Nice strike-em-out-throw-em-out with Russell Martin making a great throw to third. It’s 5-4 in the sixth.

UPDATE, 6:28 p.m.: Wow. Unreal catch by Jays 2b Mike McCoy, who is having quite an afternoon. His first career homer and an over-the-shoulder-falling-down grab on Swisher to end the seventh. It’s still 5-4 Yankees though, with Soriano coming on.

    A shout out to my good buddy Andy Dalton TCU quarterback who was selected by the Bengals with the 35th pick. See ya’ Carson Palmer!

    I heard that Carson Palmer was going to be traded to Carolina whenever the lockout ends.

    1-1 Rays coming to bat bottom 10 at the Trop.

    How is he your good buddy, given the huge difference in age?

    Rhetorical question, Farley.

  6. West Coast Yankee Fan April 30th, 2011 at 3:56 pm

    Ray – that love affair is definitely over. Dalton is going to get a shot to start as a rookie that’s all you can ask for. What a break.

  7. timmyb72 April 30th, 2011 at 3:56 pm

    1st batter up in the Rays half of the inning Joyce hits a 2B, not looking good at this point.

  8. timmyb72 April 30th, 2011 at 3:57 pm

    Zobrist the ML leader in RBI’s is up.

  9. syd_cash April 30th, 2011 at 3:58 pm

    hope the Yanks bats break out this afternoon. They need to score more runs.

  10. West Coast Yankee Fan April 30th, 2011 at 3:58 pm

    Let’s go Yankees. Big bats today!

  11. Jerkface April 30th, 2011 at 4:00 pm

    Yankees roughed up Drabek before. Jeter had a good game against Drabek last time, and the team was able to take their walks from him. They need to be patient and not get sucked in by his 2 seamer.

  12. timmyb72 April 30th, 2011 at 4:00 pm

    Rodney throwing 96 mph heat has 2 outs Joyce at 3B

  13. timmyb72 April 30th, 2011 at 4:02 pm

    Rodney as hard throwers do, just threw a WP, Joyce scores, Rays win, now only 1gm back of the Yanks.

  14. timmyb72 April 30th, 2011 at 4:03 pm

    Gotta give the Rays credit, they are survivors and a scrappy, resourceful team.

  15. Salliedogs7 April 30th, 2011 at 4:05 pm

    Go AJ. Go Yanks.

  16. Ghostwriter April 30th, 2011 at 4:08 pm

    Small sample, but the Yanks have batted .306 (OPS, .859) against Drabek thus far. Jeter, Teixeira, and Posada have had the most success against him.

  17. William Buckner April 30th, 2011 at 4:09 pm

    Scary thing for Jeter isn’t OBP or BA – neither or great but not terrible. Its slugging. He’s got no power. Hasn’t has a HR in over 300 AB’s.

  18. timmyb72 April 30th, 2011 at 4:09 pm

    Looks like a gorgeous day to be at the ballyard!

  19. syd_cash April 30th, 2011 at 4:10 pm

    go Yanks!!!

  20. West Coast Yankee Fan April 30th, 2011 at 4:11 pm

    Cue the excuses.

  21. syd_cash April 30th, 2011 at 4:12 pm

    what the hell!!!!!!!!!!!!!! gah really

  22. timmyb72 April 30th, 2011 at 4:12 pm

    Wow terrible play by the Grandy man, horrible route to that. Should be an error!

  23. syd_cash April 30th, 2011 at 4:12 pm

    that should definately be an error

    =========================]

    That’s the thing that worries me about Jeter. I’ll be happy to see him get a couple of extra-base hits. Rough start for AJ so far.

  25. UnKnown April 30th, 2011 at 4:13 pm

    Good day for Russel to have off tomorrow. A day after catching AJ

  26. Ys Guy April 30th, 2011 at 4:13 pm

    why do we need jeter to slug? all i keep hearing is that they are way too home run happy. just get on base.

    btw he’s hitting over .300 the past week.

  27. West Coast Yankee Fan April 30th, 2011 at 4:13 pm

    Shows the confidence AJ has in Martin throwing the curve in the dirt with a runner on third.

  28. timmyb72 April 30th, 2011 at 4:13 pm

    1-0 Jays.

  29. Ghostwriter April 30th, 2011 at 4:14 pm

    Oh well, at least AJ got an out, and looks to be restoring order fairly quickly.. 2 away.

  30. DocTodd April 30th, 2011 at 4:14 pm

    Jeter is like an Amish home…no power

  31. Salliedogs7 April 30th, 2011 at 4:14 pm

    They will not give an error on a ball not touched.

  32. Ys Guy April 30th, 2011 at 4:14 pm

    if this is the russel martin we’re gonna see all year, montero might need to start shagging flies.

  33. timmyb72 April 30th, 2011 at 4:16 pm

    The word from the Tigers was that Granderson sometimes took bad routes on balls hit to CF and I never really saw it till that ball hit by Davis. Wow that was horrible.

  34. Salliedogs7 April 30th, 2011 at 4:16 pm

    Let’s get that run back.

  35. Abe Peterham April 30th, 2011 at 4:17 pm

    Good inning for AJ regardless …
    Game is on YES?!
    I thought fox blacked all games out?

  36. Ys Guy April 30th, 2011 at 4:17 pm

    ok nbd, gotta get to drabek.

    would love to see us get one on , around and in i the first frame to get the ball rolling.

  37. Ys Guy April 30th, 2011 at 4:18 pm

    fox showed the mets phils (very good game) so the ‘window’ was 1-4 today.

  38. syd_cash April 30th, 2011 at 4:18 pm

    is this the Yanks first time facing Drabek???

  39. tyanksfan36 April 30th, 2011 at 4:18 pm

    Everyone misplays a ball every now and then.

  40. UnKnown April 30th, 2011 at 4:18 pm

    Fox has a three hour block I believe. And today that was from 1 to 4 est

    ————————————————-

    His power production in 2011 has dropped off 38 percent off his career norms (slugging .281 in 2011 vs. .451 career). This kind af a decline should be alarming to any fan. Even Gardner in 2010 was able to generate a slugging percentage of about .380, as a slap hitter!

    I’m on Jeter’s side, but not to the point where I’m going to delude myself…

  42. Ys Guy April 30th, 2011 at 4:19 pm

    sound the chorus….

  43. Abe Peterham April 30th, 2011 at 4:19 pm

    Ys, cool, thought “window” was all afternoon for Fox’s madness..

  44. timmyb72 April 30th, 2011 at 4:19 pm

    Mr. I can’t hit it out of the infield Jeter showing his stuff again.

  45. Salliedogs7 April 30th, 2011 at 4:20 pm

    syd_cash April 30th, 2011 at 4:18 pm
    is this the Yanks first time facing Drabek???
    ———–
    No. They faced him in Toronto earlier this year.

  46. timmyb72 April 30th, 2011 at 4:21 pm

    Does Jeter have a hit to the OF in the last week? or even going back further?

  47. YankeesNmore April 30th, 2011 at 4:21 pm

    Boy! Captain Crap is looking good!

    He needed only two hops to get it all the way out to the pitcher!

  48. Ys Guy April 30th, 2011 at 4:21 pm

    thats just it, you are hoping to see the career norm jeter. hes not that guy any more. all you need for him to do is get on base in front of the big guns, slugging doesnt matter.

    just because a guy isnt what he was when he was younger doesnt mean he cant be productive.

    how much does rajai davis slut?

    Good swing Tex.

  53. timmyb72 April 30th, 2011 at 4:22 pm

    Granderson doesn’t have a high enough OPS to be a #2 hitter imo, K’s too much.

  54. Ys Guy April 30th, 2011 at 4:22 pm

    another it is high, its is far….. he goes into his hr call about 5 times a game now.

  55. syd_cash April 30th, 2011 at 4:22 pm

    maybe its the sun in center field…looks like it is…so Grandy gets a pass

  56. Ys Guy April 30th, 2011 at 4:23 pm

    dont feed

    Cant do that, either

  58. timmyb72 April 30th, 2011 at 4:23 pm

    I should say OBP sorry.

  59. Ys Guy April 30th, 2011 at 4:24 pm

    gorgeous day for a ballgame except if you have to play the OF

  60. Ghostwriter April 30th, 2011 at 4:24 pm

    Ys really, 38 percent is a gigantic dropoff–20 percent would be huge. It’s kind of tough to spin it.

  61. timmyb72 April 30th, 2011 at 4:25 pm

    Cano swining at a ball at his ankles. 1-0 going to the top of the 2nd.

  62. Ys Guy April 30th, 2011 at 4:25 pm

    theres no spin, hes not that guy anymore, why does it matter what he used to do

    all he has to do on offense is get on base in front of the big guns. tons of good leadoff hitters dont slug.

  63. J. Alfred Prufrock April 30th, 2011 at 4:26 pm

    ///
    that was a rare miscue for Curtis.if you watch the yankees at all, he’s been near perfect out there.

    ///
    I didn’t realize the thread jumped & responded in previous to comments made about possible packages for Felix or JJ. Speaking of the future the weather looks better than yesterday so I think I’ll go see ”The Future” pitch tonight in Trenton. Go AJ.

    But they do get on base.

    Jeter does not.

  66. jacksquat April 30th, 2011 at 4:27 pm

    Granderson lost the ball in the sun, just like Davis lost a ball in the sun in the bottom half of the inning.

  67. YankeesNmore April 30th, 2011 at 4:29 pm

    There’s ANOTHER “hit” allowed by a Yankees pitcher.

    Average major league shortstops make that play in their SLEEP.

  68. Carlo April 30th, 2011 at 4:29 pm

    Was it just me or did o’neill say “oh wow” when that ball went under Jeters glove?

  69. Ys Guy April 30th, 2011 at 4:29 pm

    i guess i’ve just been through this a few times, mantle, mattingly, mays. i accept that a guy is going to decline through his later years and i dont expect him to ever be the guy he used to be. so i dont pay attantion to the difference between what he used to do and what he does now.

    jeter’s job as leadoff man is to get on base in front of the big hitters. he hasnt been doing it too well so far, but as i say he’s doing better of late. if he doesnt have an xbh all year but gets on base, i dont care. im not looking for derek jeter from the past.

    you look for what you get now, on this team from this guy. he is picking up his avg and obp of late and thats what im looking for.

  70. Chase April 30th, 2011 at 4:30 pm

    ANYONE who just saw Jeter’s attempt at that ground ball should be cringing.

    The range that he has now is putrid, he cannot get to anything at all and seems to stumble over himself after the second step.

    I’m really not sure what’s slower, his bat or his speed. This is going to be a rough 4 years.

  71. Ys Guy April 30th, 2011 at 4:31 pm

    “Was it just me or did o’neill say “oh wow” when that ball went under Jeters glove?”
    ===========================================

    someone must’ve spilled soda in his nachos

  72. Chase April 30th, 2011 at 4:31 pm

    Carlo, I believe O’Neil was saying “oh wow” because he was shocked how bad Jeter has become as a fielder. Any other short stop could have at least gotten to that ball, but it was well beyond Jeter’s range.

  73. YankeesNmore April 30th, 2011 at 4:32 pm

    Should be 2 out and a runner on first from a bad luck single…

    Instead, the Jays have a threat because Captain Crap can’t move. At least he makes up for it with his bat. :-/

  74. Ghostwriter April 30th, 2011 at 4:33 pm

    Ys Guy April 30th, 2011 at 4:25 pm

    theres no spin, hes not that guy anymore, why does it matter what he used to do

    ======================================

    It is useful to measure his performance against a historical standard to get a sense of how precipitous his decline has been. Jeter was never a power hitter, but he was always a productive hitter. Now, it doesn’t seem like he’s been very productive at all, even compared to a Punch-and-Judy type hitter. I think that he’ll likely turn it around. However, the lack of power is disconcerting, possibly the best indication that he may not rebound.

    Niblick: go f%^k yourself!

  77. Carlo April 30th, 2011 at 4:34 pm

    Ysguy – he doesn’t get on base and the problem with him not having extra base hits, its that a guy who isn’t capable of hitting a ball hard or driving it isn’t even going to produce many singles. Not being able to make solid contact means ur overmatches and the lucky poorly hit infield singles won’t last forever.

  78. timmyb72 April 30th, 2011 at 4:34 pm

    great power curve by AJ so far!

  79. Salliedogs7 April 30th, 2011 at 4:35 pm

    time to turn up the heat on this kid!

    Let’s Go Yankees!!!!!

  87. timmyb72 April 30th, 2011 at 4:38 pm

    Swishalicious gets a hit starting to come around a little bit.

  88. Ys Guy April 30th, 2011 at 4:40 pm

    people talk about why the stadium isnt as loud as it used to be, they look at the prices, the archetecture, etc. but what they miss is the most important factor.

    just like on here, the people who watch the games arent fans. they are frontrunners who go there and only act like fans AFTER someone hits a home run.

    it got bad after the dynasty but since the 09 championship, its out of control. the people in the stands are becoming just like the people on this blog. downers who actually root against the yankees so they can say ‘i told you so’

    Let’s Go Yankees!!!!!

    i miss the oppc bunch you guys chased away.

  89. JobaTipsHisCap April 30th, 2011 at 4:40 pm

  102. YankeesNmore April 30th, 2011 at 4:44 pm

    I for one am enough of a fan to CARE about the Yankees playing some washed up scrub at SS and leading off every day.

    It peaces me off that they are sacrificing their best chance at winning to cater to the feelings/ego of Captain Crap.

    We all have our own definition of what a “real fan” is… Some people think you have to be a Kool Aid-guzzling cheerleader to be a “real fan.”

    I don’t.

  103. UnKnown April 30th, 2011 at 4:44 pm

    Russel has to be moved up and hit no worse than 6th in this lineup.

    That is as hard as you will see Jeter hit a ball all season long.

    Middle/Middle fastball, lazy flyball to center.

    If you need further proof of how horrible Derek Jeter is now, look no further than the Mr. November-like reaction from his defenders when he’s able to hit a 230-foot fly ball.

    & now,I’m really really out. & even if I wasn’t going to Waterford Pk tonight, the last place on earth I’d be as this game unfolds is here with vermin that needs to go crawl under someone’s basement and find the peace that transmutation with slugs in a subterranean environment provides. Alas, poor, poor earth!

    To those here who love the captain,ye are of my heart. Go Yanks!

  148. UnKnown April 30th, 2011 at 4:54 pm

    Yeah, Molina and Drabek are obviously aware of that too. Four of the five pitches to Tex were thrown there, with two of them being called strikes.

  161. Carlo April 30th, 2011 at 4:58 pm

    Don’t worry about the HP ump. He’s consistantly giving a few inches off each corner. That will work in our favor.

    Also, everyone should remember the key to that inning won’t show up in the box score. Great effin hustle by Chavez to break up that dp.

  162. -Matt- April 30th, 2011 at 4:58 pm

    Also, Granderson’s OPS is still above .950

    i dont think you walk a second runner onto the basepaths with less than 2 out with a 2 run lead. thats just me but i think most managers would agree.

    So you constantly let him beat you?

  181. Ys Guy April 30th, 2011 at 5:09 pm

    triple, did he beat us? must’ve missed that. i just dont think you put a 2nd runner on base in front of a guy with power early in a game when you have a 2 run lead. and i think most managers would agree.

  182. UnKnown April 30th, 2011 at 5:09 pm

    Right just like a closer won’t come in to face the 4,5,6 hitters in the 8th of a 1 run game. Rather all teams want to save him for the 7, 8, 9 in the 9th. Stupid.

  183. Triple Short of a Cycle April 30th, 2011 at 5:11 pm

    Ys Guy,

    How many home runs has he hit against us in the past 2 years. The Jays don’t have a great lineup outside of him? Last at bat aside, they don’t even walk him when he comes up with 2 out and nobody on

  184. Ys Guy April 30th, 2011 at 5:12 pm

    logically you should bring the closer in in that situation. but managers (and im talking almost every single one of them) think the psychology works the other way and these guys need to have defined roles. i think its crazy but i’ve never managed a major league team and the people who have are almost unanimous in thinking the other way.

  185. Salliedogs7 April 30th, 2011 at 5:12 pm

    I’m really liking the offense today, nice solid production. And more importantly, whenever the Blue Jays get a run against us, we immediately retaliate—you hit us, we hit you back. That’s winning baseball…

  194. Ys Guy April 30th, 2011 at 5:15 pm

    4-2 yankees. its gotten very quiet in here all of a sudden. see what i mean, these downers actually root against the yankees because they would rather be right in thier doom and gloom predictions than actually see the yankees succeed.

    but they are lurking, hoping that joba blows it or soriano has another bad outing, which would make thier day and prompt them to come rushing back into this room with thier ‘i told you so’s’

    This strike zone is floating all over the place. Swish had a ball called right down the pipe a ball and now Sado gets a break.

    With that said he should’ve already had his walk anyways.

  196. Ys Guy April 30th, 2011 at 5:17 pm

    posada moves the runner over (who eventually scores) his first time up, then walks. but where are the people saying he’s worthless complimenting him on good ab’s? nowhere. they are cowering in the darkness hoping for calamity.

    What I like about Gardy’s approach over the last few games is that he’s shown a higher propensity to draw the walks. I think that he’s finally out of his slump, and things are starting to go his way again, muh to the chagrin of a number of posters here…

  227. Ys Guy April 30th, 2011 at 5:29 pm

    i think that pretty much proves his trolldom and people should ask chad to have him banned. certainly pabe would have banned him for that.

  228. YankeesNmore April 30th, 2011 at 5:31 pm

    Abraham is a boston-bred Red Sox beach. Can’t judge anything by what he did.

  229. DocTodd April 30th, 2011 at 5:33 pm

    Nice quick inning by AJ

    Another bases loaded one out situation for Captain Crap.

    I’ll take another 230-foot pop fly RIGHT NOW!
    =========================================

    You know, if he never gets another hit again, he is still a hell of a lot better than you.

    =========================================
    WAS! … WAS a lot better than me. In fact, WAS a lot better than most.

    First ballot HoF’er, no doubt. Retired #, monument, the whole nine yards…

    But he has done nothing but suck since June of last year
    ==================================================

    IS.

    ok hopefully something will be done now.

  243. YankeesNmore April 30th, 2011 at 5:46 pm

    Best evidence yet that Jeter is done.

    About all that is left to defend his play is, “he’s a better baseball player than I AM.”

    What an endorsement!

  244. YankeesNmore April 30th, 2011 at 5:47 pm

    Wouldnt mind having some of those runs Jeter pissed away now.

  245. Ys Guy April 30th, 2011 at 5:47 pm

  251. Ace April 30th, 2011 at 5:50 pm

    Cannot take seriously a jerk who wishes injury on any player especially Jeter. Stay classy yankeesnmore

  252. 108 stitches April 30th, 2011 at 5:52 pm

    Need additional runs. 6-8 more will do.

  253. Ys Guy April 30th, 2011 at 5:53 pm

    i cant imagine why you would walk a batter with the bases empty and a 2 run lead. in that situation you are trying to keep the tying run from coming up.

  254. YankeesNmore April 30th, 2011 at 5:53 pm

    I wish for the Yankees to be the best team they can be.

    That means no Jeter.

  255. Ys Guy April 30th, 2011 at 5:54 pm

    bottom of the order getting it done so far, lets see some more!

  256. Ys Guy April 30th, 2011 at 5:54 pm

    Hip Hip Jorge!

  257. Ace April 30th, 2011 at 5:55 pm

    Posadas got another what? 65 ab’s bef Montero time?

  258. Ys Guy April 30th, 2011 at 5:55 pm

    they are using thier good pitchers today, im glad to see that, it may help tomorrow.

  259. Ys Guy April 30th, 2011 at 5:56 pm

    hoping montero shows something behind the plate so he can come up.

  260. YankeesNmore April 30th, 2011 at 5:56 pm

    I wonder how long the Yankees will go before they bring up Vazquez or Montero to start taking DH at-bats.

  261. DocTodd April 30th, 2011 at 5:57 pm

    Jorge is so slow they use a calendar to time him from home to 1st…

  262. Ys Guy April 30th, 2011 at 5:57 pm

    Are we going to give him as much time to “bounce back” as we’re giving Jeter???

    If so, you gottat give him all of this year +

  264. Jerkface April 30th, 2011 at 5:58 pm

    Just checking in while at home depot has the umpire been as atrocious as gameday leads me to believe?? Blue jays getting huge calls.

    Stop BS’ing everybody. You don’t wish form the Yankees to be the best team they can be.

    You wish to troll a Yankee blog.

    Your own blog was a failure.

    You have been banned from other blogs and stalk every beat writer in town with your nonsensical drivel on Twitter. They actually laugh at the fact an adult can be so sick.

    Anybody wishing injury on any player, let alone Derek Jeter, isn’t a fan. It’s someone in need of psychological help.

    If you want to troll this place day and night with your drivel, that’s your call.

    If the powers that be here allow it, that’s their call.

    But, stop lying to everyone that you are some kind of super fan who cares deeply about the Yankees.

    You don’t.

    Your only interest is to troll blogs and nothing more.

    Jeter at least has his average around .250, though not in the clutch.
    Posada has what 9 hits?

  269. Jerkface April 30th, 2011 at 6:01 pm

    Just checked brooks and the blue jays have 8 more strike calls in the other batters box than the yankees…don’t know about both ways

  270. ac1 April 30th, 2011 at 6:03 pm

    at least they got the pen up at first sign of trouble this time….

  271. -Matt- April 30th, 2011 at 6:03 pm

    5-4 gotta lock it down

  272. DocTodd April 30th, 2011 at 6:03 pm

    Feels like wevare up 6 runs in this game, just up by one now….AJ hang on!

  273. UnKnown April 30th, 2011 at 6:06 pm

    Beautiful. Can some of these guys and stop this running around nonsense.

  274. DocTodd April 30th, 2011 at 6:07 pm

    Nice! I thought they weren’t gonna call strike 3, but did….nice play by Martin,what a pickup! Bet the Sox wish they ad signed him….

  275. DocTodd April 30th, 2011 at 6:08 pm

    We need to score a few here..

  276. Ace April 30th, 2011 at 6:11 pm

    Tor pen dominating. 5-2 bases loaded 1 out. You gotta tack on

  277. DocTodd April 30th, 2011 at 6:11 pm

    Jeez, Gardner could have gone up there without a bat in his hand….never swung…

  278. Ace April 30th, 2011 at 6:13 pm

    Chad needs to get rid of yankeesnmore. Wishing injury on players let alone Jeter is ban worthy.

  279. syd_cash April 30th, 2011 at 6:13 pm

    The Formula is going to have to be flawless today. No hiccups allowed.

  284. LGY April 30th, 2011 at 6:19 pm

    AJ only threw 82 pitches.

  285. ac1 April 30th, 2011 at 6:21 pm

    yes 82 pitches but they were not very good overall.
    too close now to give him another inning to try to get outs.

  286. -Matt- April 30th, 2011 at 6:21 pm

    AJ only threw 82 pitches.
    ———————-

    nice inning fo Joba

  288. UnKnown April 30th, 2011 at 6:21 pm

    Joba did his part. Next is SO. Buckle Up Y’all

  289. ac1 April 30th, 2011 at 6:21 pm

    now it would be nice to get 1-2 more runs for soriano.

  290. Ace April 30th, 2011 at 6:21 pm

    Now let joba start the 8

  291. hardwired7 April 30th, 2011 at 6:21 pm

    Is it wrong for me to wish a career-ending injury on Wally Bell?

  292. GreenBeret7 April 30th, 2011 at 6:22 pm

    Center field has got to be brutal out there today. Neither center fielder is seeing is seeing anything out there.

  293. YankeesNmore April 30th, 2011 at 6:22 pm

    I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve said this, but Eric Chavez is going to be HUGE for this team if he can stay healthy.

    Nothing not to love about the way he plays.

  294. Carlo April 30th, 2011 at 6:22 pm

    Rest easy friends, Soriano is available for the 8th.

  295. YankeesNmore April 30th, 2011 at 6:23 pm

    Ace April 30th, 2011 at 6:21 pm
    Now let joba start the 8
    ===========================
    No chance

  296. Ace April 30th, 2011 at 6:23 pm

    Not letting Joba go out for 8 after 6 pitches is moronic. The formula should be get 9 outs. Not innings.

    I think they were a hard 82 to throw. These 3 at the back end need to come up huge and go flawless here. Sooner or later the Pen has to be Lockdown. Rather sooner then later.

  299. YankeesNmore April 30th, 2011 at 6:25 pm

    AJ pitched better than most people think.

    The Jays came in here RAKING… Don’t think 2010 AJ woulda made it out of the 4th today.

  300. UnKnown April 30th, 2011 at 6:25 pm

    SO is going to have a tough 8th ahead of him. He can mend a lot of damage he has done around to his rep by getting out of it clean

  301. Ace April 30th, 2011 at 6:25 pm

  309. UnKnown April 30th, 2011 at 6:29 pm

    Maybe the scoreboard operator can change the inning here to the 9th for Soriano and try to trick him. Gotta try something here to get out of this inning clean.

  310. DocTodd April 30th, 2011 at 6:30 pm

    Carlo, I hope you’re not referring to Suzyn Waldman…..just kidding you…..

  311. -Matt- April 30th, 2011 at 6:31 pm

    Damn tough call here with Batista, I suppose you can’t put the go ahead run on but still…

    Tough tough out.

  313. DocTodd April 30th, 2011 at 6:32 pm

    I can’t understand how Joba throws six pitches and is done for the day….Girardi heeds to throw out his book

  314. Chad Jennings April 30th, 2011 at 6:32 pm

    As I’ve told many of you in emails, I’m not going to tell someone how to root for their team, and I’m certainly not going to ban someone from the blog because I disagree with them or they disagree with me. I shouldn’t be the person who decides the “right” and “wrong” way to be a Yankees fan.

    When people start posting ignorance and nonsense — the extremes from either side, too much sunshine or too much gloom — please ignore it or discuss it reasonably. Those sort of posters only steer the conversation if people let them steer the conversation. The ones seeking nothing but attention will leave if they don’t get what they want.

    There are plenty of fans who have very little understanding of the game, and I think it’s good that they can come to a forum with intelligent fans who debate the real issues and make reasonable points. I think it’s good that fans can read opinions from every side, and use those opinions to craft their own way of looking at things. That sort of forum is never going to exist if I start kicking out all the people who look at things differently. Even the ones who I think are flat out wrong have a place here, because that’s the only way it can work.

    Obviously, there are certain hateful comments that can’t be allowed. I rarely comment about them — other than in emails to individuals — because I don’t want to give the satisfaction of additional attention, but as you all know, we’ve worked to get rid of those comments. Along those lines, rooting for an injury — even vaguely — has no place within a fan base or in the comments of a blog. Knock off that sort of nonsense.

  315. ac1 April 30th, 2011 at 6:32 pm

    that first pitch looked very good, called a ball of course.

  316. Ace April 30th, 2011 at 6:33 pm

  331. -Matt- April 30th, 2011 at 6:38 pm

    totally dominant

    he actually pitched three outs

  332. Carlo April 30th, 2011 at 6:39 pm

    Posada is in his last year & gives his all every game.

    He has brought a lot to this team for a long time so if he has a bad year in his final year,so be it.

  346. ac1 April 30th, 2011 at 6:49 pm

    Jeter and Posada both have their issues.
    Yes Posada is .125, but his homeruns have come in clutch situations.
    Jeter is batting .250 and playing ok SS (Tex has saved some errors), but has not had a clutch hit in 2 years.

  347. YankeesNmore April 30th, 2011 at 6:49 pm

    Jeter plays a good SS.
    ——————————–

    Jerkface – chad has scolded u in the past? Does he know who u are and that U’ve killed a man with ur bare hands and the reems of paper u keep ur stats on

    —–

    Jerkface actually shot a man in Reno just to watch him die. Johnny Cash wrote a song about him.

    Actually, that’s not why people email Chad.

    Wishing an injury on any player is garbage. It has nothing with being a “kook aid drinker.

    Iy has to do with not acting like an AH just to troll a blog.

    This place has also had a serious issue with stalking. That accounts for most of the emails Chad receives.

    Nobody is trying to stifle dissent.

    What we are trying to do is not have people turn the place into a sewer.

    If you aren’t intelligent enough to know the difference then posting here probably isn’t the pace for you.

  357. Carlo April 30th, 2011 at 6:53 pm

    Chad – hahaha. well done. I see ur time in scranton, my hometown, has trained u well.

    i don’t remember Molina being about to hit at all when he played for us.
    he seems to have picked up a skill or two in Toronto.

    ?Posada brings nothing else.?

    Have you ever heard of a slump? Every player goes through it.
    ——————————————————————–
    Exactly right. And Posada’s “slump” isn’t even 11-months old like somebody else’s I know.

  360. Carlo April 30th, 2011 at 6:54 pm

    Enough with the nonsense molina. Meet ur maker and put this one in the books.

  361. syd_cash April 30th, 2011 at 6:55 pm

    lol what happened to the no doubles defense…and why not throw some pitches inside

  362. Ace April 30th, 2011 at 6:56 pm

    Molina?? Lol

  363. YankeesNmore April 30th, 2011 at 6:56 pm

    SJ, you’ve been griping about my criticisms LONG before I ever said the Yankees would be a better team if Jeter couldn’t play.

  364. 4 NYY April 30th, 2011 at 6:57 pm

    Another Mo down !

  365. DocTodd April 30th, 2011 at 6:57 pm

    Theeeeeeeeeeeeee Yankees win!

  366. -Matt- April 30th, 2011 at 6:57 pm

    Phew

  367. syd_cash April 30th, 2011 at 6:58 pm

    lol what was up with Mo and that Molina at bat I rarely see him smile or laugh on the mound

  368. Salliedogs7 April 30th, 2011 at 6:58 pm

    Ball game over. Yankees win!!! Yankees win!!

  369. Carlo April 30th, 2011 at 6:58 pm

    SJ – no need to call out people for lacking intelligence.

  370. Tom in N.J. April 30th, 2011 at 6:58 pm

    Hey look, the Yankees won…

  371. DocTodd April 30th, 2011 at 6:58 pm

    Tough win,Jays did not quit

  372. syd_cash April 30th, 2011 at 7:00 pm

    good game. Its nice to see the bullpen shut down, ‘especially with the recent inconsistency

  373. BoJo April 30th, 2011 at 7:02 pm

    From what I have noticed since I started posting here…it seems that only one person was involved in stalking and posting personal info (CR 9), and that person doesn’t seem to have come back. Is that correct?

  374. Pat M. April 30th, 2011 at 7:05 pm

    Carlo….SJ will never call out a person for ignorance, stupidity yes

  375. GreenBeret7 April 30th, 2011 at 7:05 pm

    Yanks pull off a win against a good pitching staff, and the same idiots are still whining about something and anything. What a shock that it’s the same one on a daily basis. Go troll the women’s golf board again.

  376. BoJo April 30th, 2011 at 7:06 pm

    People troll the women’s golf blog?!?!?

  377. GreenBeret7 April 30th, 2011 at 7:07 pm

    That person does come back…new name…new IP. As long as that jackass has the ability to keep changing those things, there’s no way to keep him out.

  378. DocTodd April 30th, 2011 at 7:07 pm

    Is John Flaherty thevWB Mason guy with a fake stache?? Deadringer

  379. BoJo April 30th, 2011 at 7:07 pm

    Next I’ll find out he was banned for trolling the Rock Paper Scissors blog

  380. GreenBeret7 April 30th, 2011 at 7:08 pm

    Larry The Lump was finally banned on every ESPN board including the tennis, golf, college and NASCAR boards.

    ++++++++++++++++
    Too bad…now that he has shown he will post names if ignored, I can understand why others left/

  382. Salliedogs7 April 30th, 2011 at 7:09 pm

    JoSoMo did their job today.

    Wow! That takes dedication to be just an AH

  384. DocTodd April 30th, 2011 at 7:10 pm

    The good old days…..ragging on Nancy Lopez after a bogey…LOL

  385. BoJo April 30th, 2011 at 7:10 pm

    I wonder what he stated was his life goal in his high school yearbook….

  386. GreenBeret7 April 30th, 2011 at 7:10 pm

    His mother told him to be good at something. That’s what he chose to be good at.

  387. BoJo April 30th, 2011 at 7:11 pm

    DocTodd April 30th, 2011 at 7:10 pm
